Bridlington, with its beautiful beaches is situated on the East riding of Yorkshire. This was Ds and mine first time in Yorkshire and we really liked it. Just north of Bridlington lies the seaside resorts of Scarborough and Whitby, where we also stopped before we got back home in the late hours.
This is Bridlington Beach and its Fairground attractions 'out of season'. I asked D why he did not take a photograph of the 'Jungle River' sign from the front. His response, 'well that's what I'm seeing'. He was right to point out that such places have a front and a back. We as tourists often tend only ever to see the front side of places.
Other than a number of dog walkers, again we had the Bridlington beach all to ourselves. Yipee! If I had the energy I would have been been running around the beach like an excited child.
I really like this photograph. Seagulls are perched nearly on every stanchion.
I absolutely loved the pebbles here - natures smooth stone soap.
We then decided to take a wander to the town centre in search of a real Yorkshire tart!
'Yorkshire Curd Tart' is a speciality from the County of Yorkshire. Yorkshire Curd Tart was traditionally made with fresh curd left over from the cheese making process; then the custardy base was enhanced further with currants, raising and spices. Yorkshire curd should not be confused with cottage cheese or cream cheese. It is different in that it has to be cooked before eating.
We finished this large Yorkshire Curd tart between the two of us - well it was our lunch. It reminded us both of a lemony cheesecake but it wasn't overly rich or sugary. D really, really liked the sweetness of the tart offset by the slight tang of the chewy curd. In fact he liked it so much that when we stopped again, he was checking out the windows of the local bakers in Scarborough and Whitby.
